Skill Building Badge: Science of Style

 

Imagine farming silkworms to make raw silk, engineering a biodegradable fabric, or using chemistry to develop a cover-up that hides and heals acne scars. Fashion and beauty are glamorous businesses, but it's the science behind these industries that makes their products cutting edge and desirable. In this badge, use the science of style to create and imagine-your own products.

 

The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting will help you learn about the science of style by completing these 5 steps:

  1. Test skin care and makeup
  2. Examine the science behind fabrics and accessories
  3. Explore the science behind hair products and perfume
  4. Investigate the sociology of style
  5. Formulate future style

When you've earned this badge, you'll know the science behind makeup, perfume, fashion, and skin care products. Get started on your Science of Style badge - refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for complete instructions and activities.
